Someone said the rules were hard to read and it's been so long I can't say ... but they ARE very simple. It's also one of the few games that encourages you to extend and change the rules, so long as everyone agrees, and doing so keeps it from getting boring over time.
It's a lot of fun with only five dice; very portable and I appreciate the fair pricing for the basic game given its simplicty. It's a lot of fun and highly recommended!
For a game as simple as it is, learning it was a bit more confusing than I had expected. It helps to have someone there who has played it before. There are a lot of little rules that can take some time to get used to. The examples help, but there were some situations where ruling were unclear by the manual.
Once you get past that point, it's good quick fun. We've played with as many as 8 people and as little as 2, but I find 3-5 to be the optimum number of players... otherwise it can get a bit slow and boring waiting for your next turn, especially if people are easily distracted by other things. It is almost completely luck based, so there is the slight possibility of one person getting screwed completely for the entirety of the game, but that's just how these things go. In general, it ends up at least fairly closely matched.
All in all, definitely money well spent for the price paid. A good one to have in the game arsenal.
Otherwise, it's great. It's simple and fun.
It's a dice game, with some fancy-looking dice.
The gameplay is very similar to Farkel (aka 10,000) with some twists to the gameplay and a different scoring methodolgy.
I had thought this game was out of print, but was delighted to find it's still available.
Players accumulate points by rolling the scoring 5's and 10's, and also by rolling triples of 2's, 3's, 4's or 6's. To make things more interesting there is 1 die with a wild "flaming sun" on it. Players set aside scoring dice and continue to roll the remaining dice until they get to a point they are allowed to stop or when they "wimpout" and lose all the points during that turn. Excitement really starts to build when the accumulated score within a turn builds and the rules force a player to continue rolling even if they would like to stop.
When playing with elementary aged children, they get a lot of addition and multiplication practice without realizing it as they tally their score for each turn.
Our family has enjoyed this game for about 15 years now, and we have taught it to many friends. The rules can be a bit confusing the first time around, but once one stumbles through a game or two it gets much easier. Really, you can't get more entertainment from such an economical game than this.
Anyone, and as many people as you want can play.
I suspect that anyone who does not find this game fun is most likely dead inside. Or dead. Or a zombie. (though the zombies might find it fun. throw this in your zombie emergency pack as a last resort distraction defense against the undead:)
For new players, the instructions are clear, and easy to remember.
The game shipped in 2 days (even though the estimated shipping was 3-5 days)
